If want to learn more about the history of Montréal, that is the place. With its 5 rooms it covers from the beginning of the colonization until our days. The second floor is dedicated to expositions.

They have done a fabulous job with the history of Vieux Montreal. Things are broken into 50 year increments, and the exhibits are very nicely executed. Highly recommended.

This is a small museum but it gives you a lot of information on Montreal. This is one of the most reasonable priced museum so if you plan to visit a few museums get a city pass.

This is quite a small museum. On the ground floor there is an exhibition of the history of Montreal. On the first floor there is a current exhibition about expo 67. It is very interesting to hear how this expo changed the city.

Well done review of Montreal's beginnings, with computer graphics enhancing historical drawings. Three floors. Top floor dedicated to the Montreal '67 Expo, which was cool. An easy visit, but very well done.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
